Cotton will be tasked with expanding Ampush’s national sales team and maintaining customer service, as well as helping to develop and execute the ad technology company’s go-to-market strategy.
Prior to his stint at digital radio application TuneIn, Cotton served as senior vice president and general manager at Monster.
Ampush CEO Jesse Pujji said in announcing Cotton’s hire:
We’re thrilled to have Rick join our executive team and drive our strategic client relationships, as well as go-to-market and product strategy. He brings a rare combination of leadership, analytical rigor, and client-first focus that is a perfect fit for Ampush’s DNA. His deep experience in marketing software and technology will take Ampush to the next level in the native ad space.
Ampush is aggressively innovating to drive results across native platforms like Facebook and Twitter. The company is developing a premium brand that offers leading technology and top-tier customer service to meet the needs of world-class partners like MasterCard and HotelTonight. I am excited to join the Ampush leadership team while helping to scale what I believe to be the premiere native ad solution on the market.
